Help I.D.

picked a bunch of these mushrooms growing on rotten logs all within 50 yards of each other, all in clumps of 4 or more, totalling about 40 of them, still waiting for a spore print.

the gills are brown, I havent noticed any bruising as of now, they whre picked 20 minutes ago, the caps are scaley and leathery, possibly from drying out? the stems are solid and have the same texture as the caps and about half of them look as if they'd just broken free from their veil, none still had the veil attached. the caps range in size from 1/4 inch diameter to 2-1/2 inch diameter, the stems about an inch to 4 inches long.

Those are Pholiotas, similar to P. squarrosa, which causes severe stomach upsets in some people. The ones I find usually smell strongly like garlic.

Happy mushrooming!

It's probably a Pholiota, print will be brown if it is. A lot of Pholiota's have scaly stems and scaly stalks below the veil and grow on wood. Sometimes their caps are slimy.

Pretty much. A lot of the Pholiotas have curved scales like the ones in the
pictures though. Writing a good discription is tough.
